The cost of a mission trip varies from country to country and depends on the time of the year. Most trips to Latin America and the Caribbean cost anywhere from $1300 to $2500, including round-trip airfare. For trips to Africa, the cost is generally between $3000 and $3500, which also includes airfare.
The cost of the trip is all-inclusive. Airfare, ground transportation in the country, lodging and meals are included. Any additional personal spending money can be used for shopping and other miscellaneous items.
We work with children on all of our scheduled missions trips. The specific projects vary from site to site. For example, there are opportunities to do Vacation Bible School, interact with children, and work on projects where we help improve the facilities of an orphanage or malnutrition center.
Whether you are traveling in the U.S. or abroad, it is wise to exercise proper caution and discretion, especially if you are by yourself. However, we always make sure that the conditions are safe for our teams in all of our mission locations.The U.S. State Department website can provide you up-to-date information regarding any security or travel advisories associated with a particular country.
You only need a heart for children. On each trip there are projects that are completed based on the skill level of the team. You do not need to have any special skills in order to be a part of a mission team.
On each trip we take out special international health insurance that covers medical costs and gets you back to the States if necessary. The cost of this insurance is $2.75 per day. Each person traveling with One More Child is covered by this insurance.
The cost of your trip includes secondary insurance that covers emergency medical healthcare. If there were a serious illness or accident, staff would be available to immediately transport you to a safe hospital or clinic for quality healthcare. Most of the minor discomforts and illnesses that occur during international travel can be taken care of with over-the-counter medicines.
